Here are some common types of settlements that a workplace harassment lawyer can help you secure:
In some cases, a settlement may include a confidentiality clause, which prevents either party from discussing the details of the settlement publicly. This can protect your privacy and reputation. Other potential outcomes could be a public apology from the harasser or the company, or a formal acknowledgment of the wrongdoing.
A workplace harassment lawyer from Levin Simes will work closely with you to understand your specific situation, advise you on the best course of action, and negotiate on your behalf to secure the most appropriate and just settlement.
What helps you also helps others. By taking a stand, you can seek the damages you’re entitled to, and create a path for others to do the same. In fact, your settlement could include provisions to ensure that you and your fellow coworkers are not retaliated against for bringing a harassment complaint or pursuing legal action.

Yes, men can experience sexual harassment from male or female perpetrators at work. Men have the exact same rights as women to a non-toxic workplace environment, and men have the same legal recourse to fight sexual harassment at their jobs. Levin Simes is fully equipped to handle any workplace harassment case regardless of your gender, gender presentation, or sexual orientation.
After filing a lawsuit, the process may involve discovery (gathering evidence), negotiations, mediation, and, if a settlement isn't reached, a trial. The timeline between filing your complaint and the final resolution could take several months or more than a year. Your attorney from Levin Simes will keep you updated with reports regarding your case’s progress throughout the process.
Retaliation for filing a sexual harassment lawsuit is illegal. Laws protect employees from retaliation for asserting their rights under anti-harassment laws. If you are faced with retaliation from your employer or coworkers, your lawyer can send cease and desist letters or help you report these crimes to the proper authorities.
Your timeline could range from 6 months to 10 years, depending on what kind of abuse you’ve suffered.
The time limit for filing a sexual harassment lawsuit, known as the statute of limitations, varies depending on your location. The federal EEOC has a time limit of 180 days from the most recent harassment experience for filing an official complaint. If a harassed employee is also filing a claim with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), that timeline can extend to 300 days (nearly a full year). However, California law also allows survivors to file certain claims within 10 years from the date of a sexual assault.
